Safe Orthopaedics (Paris:ALSAF) (FR0012452746 – ALSAF), a company specialized in the design and marketing of always new and sterile single-use implants and instruments improving the minimally invasive treatment of spinal fracture conditions, announces today that the efficacy of the second generation of the SteriSpine PS pedicle screw system has been demonstrated in testing by more than ten European surgeons.
The SteriSpine PS range, which was designed and obtained a CE mark in 2011, is the first sterile pedicle screw technology delivered with (single-use, sterile) ready-to-use instruments on a global scale. In July 2019, Safe Orthopaedics announced the launch of the second generation.
“This next-generation system represents a new milestone in the development of single-use instruments. They are less invasive, easier to use, improve surgical practice irrespective of the approach used, and have almost the same feel as conventional metal instruments”, commented Dr. Sabatier from the Clinique des Cèdres in Toulouse.
Several instrument kits are now available, with a view to optimizing the various surgical techniques and/or treatment of various diseases. For example, the Essential kit is intended for percutaneous surgery on spinal fractures. The size of implant grips has also been reduced. They are 25% smaller, completely smooth and radiotransparent to ensure a minimally-invasive approach that is both safe and secure.
“I have used Safe Orthopaedics’ next-generation tubes to treat a fracture at the thoracolumbar junction through percutaneous surgery. I was very happy with the radiotransparency of these new tubes and that they did not cross at this spinal junction. The substantially enhanced ability to shorten the rod and the 30% reduction in incision size make it a system that is even better suited to delivering the best treatment for the patient”, added Dr. Lubansu of the Free University of Brussels.
SteriSpine PS is a key range for Safe Orthopaedics. It is used to treat a large number of conditions, such as vertebral fractures, a strategically important commercial segment for the business.
“After leveraging the experience our engineers have gained and the feedback we have received from surgeons from the use of more than 15,000 ready-to-use spinal surgery kits, we asked a large group of surgeons to test the efficacy of our next-generation SteriSpine PS system. It represents a key growth driver and is already delivering benefits since we have recently recorded growth of 38% in Q3 2019 in the SteriSpine PS range, compared to 22% on average over the last four quarters”, concluded Pierre Dumouchel, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Safe Orthopaedics.
